Don't do it if you can avoid it

    Don't go to Dish. I did it for better resolution and the fact that Comcast was getting a little too expensive for me as I am now retired. Dish has better resolution over Comcast and it will be less expensive for a couple years at least.

    The Dish dvr (Hopper 3) leaves a gazillion things to be desired. Yeah it has 16 tuners, but no front panel lights. And by chance if you tune to a channel that one of the tuners is already on, instead of going to that tuner it uses another tuner, now you have the same channel tuned twice.

    Can't see all 16 tuners either, just 4 via PIP.

    In order to delete a recording that you are watching you have to fast forward all the way to the end of the recording before the delete option is available.

    No time line of what you are watching unless you press the stop button. No indication of what channel you just tuned to. Fast forward speed 15x 60x and 300x. 15x is as fast as top speed on the Bolt. Way too fast.

    I wish TiVo still made a satellite dvr. Oh how I wish.

    I am going to miss TiVo so much.
